Clan of the Awen People of the Awen

Welcome to the Seeker's Guide for Awenechen, a Gwyddon tradition. 'Awenechen' is Welsh for "The clan (or family) that seek divine inspiration." Gwyddon is an ancient Welsh religious tradition. Our tradition, which has been in the United States since 1792, has become somewhat Americanized, adapting to the land in which it is practiced. This Seeker's Guide includes our history, altar tools, gods, philosophy, metaphysics and more. Our structure includes the advanced priesthood Colleges of Derwydd (Druid), Gwyddonydd (Vatis or Ovatis) and Bardd (Bard). This material is open to all seeking to learn more about us.

The study of these materials in no way qualifies one to call themselves a Gwyddon of any level. If you would like to learn, please contact one of the Colleges listed below.
